Binder Clips

By now, you know how much I love Zebra Patterns.  I use it as often as I can.  There’s just something about the black & white that calms me.  So, it’s only natural that I add it to my home office area.

One evening while I was bored, I was looking at my plain black binder clips.  I showed you my Zebra office bling before, and I thought, why not add it to some of the accessories?  I started to play around & this is what I finished with:

I can’t believe how easy it was to change these!

I got mine at Walmart, but I’m sure you can get them anywhere that carries office supplies.

I started by making a pattern that would cover the binder clips, using an index card.  I just folded the card around the binder clip & cut it to fit.

Once the pattern was made, I marked it with an arrow so I knew which way the pattern would go.

The supplies were what I had on hand.  The clips, the pattern, a black sharpie, scissors & Zebra patterned Duck Tape.  (love my duck tape)

I used the Sharpie to outline the pattern on to the duck tape.

I cut out the duck tape pieces & covered the binder clips.

I think I went a little overboard.

They were so easy to make.  There are so many patterns & colors of Duck Tape that the possibilities are endless.  If you don’t have Duck Tape, I’m sure you could use other tapes, like Washi Tape.

Happy Creating everyone!
